When it comes to aspirations, it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step?
“Intentions, not resolutions,” a writing workshops wrote in a new year’s email.
I have always been somewhat anti-resolution. The whole idea of “self-improvement” that isn’t achieved through clear goals. “You have to believe in it,” I explained to a friend today. “What’s the point of saying that you will lose pound per week if you don’t really quite believe in it yourself?”
So to really intend to change something…then to make an empty declaration.
Indeed, what is my next step?
I would say now is to embrace fear. I specifically said “embrace when encountered embarrassment.” Some would say that’s so vague. But I know that I have a passive attitude when overwhelmed by fear. To express it. To state it firmly. To let others hear it. Then decide what to do next.
